Separatists from Donetsk and Luhansk regions confirm the location of only 50 hostages out of 121 listed by Ukrainian side. This was reported by Iryna Gerashchenko, the vice-speaker of Verkhovna Rada, Ukrainian representative in humanitarian subgroup of Trilateral Contact Group, according to Interfax-Ukraine

"There are 121 people on the list as of today. These are civilians and military officers. Unfortunately, militants only confirm about 50 people from this list, we know about the location of 70 persons. We have to get the confirmation for every person we know," Gerashchenko commented.

She also reminded that militants demand about 600 people to be returned to them.

According to her, the key problem in this regard is political unwillingness from the Russian Federation to exchange these people.
